Following on from the most recent trailer
for the game, we are now introduced to more details for SMITE
. We are focusing mainly on game modes this time, with a couple of bits about characters.
you'll be able to play as one of over 60 different gods available. You'll have a choice of gods from all sorts of different mythology, such as Thor, Apollo and Kali. Each character will have their own different play style, with their own moves, and fits into a team in a different way.
There's several different game modes for you to experience in the game, where you can build your skills in each, but the play style for each will suit different players. The main mode is called Conquest, which is the typical MOBA style of gaming. You'll be in teams of five, where each player must be a different god, and face off against each other in ranked matches. Be prepared though, as this is supposedly the toughest and most competitive of the game modes.
For the more casual gamers out there, there's the Arena mode. Once again you'll be in a 5v5 scenario, but prepare to meet battle in big open arena instead. You'll have to win on your own merits, as well as working together in a team, and the rewards you get will be based on this. Next up there's Joust mode, where you'll be in a 3v3 team instead. Still a mode for the more casual gamer, your skills will still be tested similarly to the Arena mode.
Finally you'll be up against Siege mode, where you will be able to spawn creatures to help you in attacking the enemies. Your aim is to cause more destruction to the other team in order the get bigger and better creatures to help you, so you'll want to be attacking enemies as soon as possible. To partake in all these game modes, there's a number of different controller setups to help you, as well as a ranking system which means you'll never be matched against someone much higher or lower than your level.
will be free to play when it releases later this year for Xbox One, so make sure to keep your eyes and ears peeled for its release!
